Hi Denise.. I forgot you were in the UK! I'm sorry to say that I don't have any further information about the CRF receptor antagonist trials; I am just trying to keep an eye on them for the future, as it sounds like such an intelligent approach.

I guess it's impossible to say whether the TMS acted as a placebo or not! But I do feel fine; I am supposed to monitor myself with the Beck Depression Rating Scale. Before the TMS, I was steadily in the "severe" range for months at least (actually years, although I wasn't rating it); since having it, I am usually in the normal range, and sometimes in the "slightly depressed" range. I'm doing a bunch of other things.too. In addition to the fish oil and vitamins, I take both Synthroid and Cytomel; I have been slightly hypothyroid since the depression began 10 years ago, but found adding Cytomel to the synthroid was a big help. I also take tianeptine, which I get from the UK, for its neuroprotective effects. In addition to all of that, I went back into psychotherapy to try to deal better with the neglect and abuse which I suffered as a child.I have found an excellent therapist, and am very grateful for that. So it's hard to say just what is helping- hopefully, they all are!

It's good that Zyprexa helps; that was the one that helped me the most, also. However, I gained a lot of weight on it, and developed insulin resistance and abnormal blood lipid readings, so I had to stop it to avoid developing some serious physical problems.

Take care.. I hope to hear that you are doing well also.
